People Pay Rent

Voters in Colorado will be able to vote on when personhood begins. The initiative, called The Human Life Amendment, seeks to define a person as "any human being from the moment of fertilization." It seems like people forget that, sometimes, being a person kind of sucks. One thing that sucks about being a person is that, while you have plenty of freedoms, you're freedom is also limited (that's obvious in this legislation).

See, people have the right to live wherever they want, but they can't live there for free. If a fertilized egg has the civil right to live in a woman's body, that right has to come at a price. And how I look at it, that price is around $650 a month. That's reasonable rent for a studio apartment. I think the uterus is comprable to a studio, right? It's like one really small room. And don't forget the utilities. How much does it cost to keep your heart ticking? I'm sure economists in Colorado can figure that one out.

Oh, wait. Embryos can't make money! Now, what happens to people who don't have the money to pay their rent. They get evicted! Sorry, egg. No squatters allowed.
